    I was out camping with some friends last night, and the neighbor's hound treed a possum and would... not... shut... up. Owner pulled out an AR-7, put it together, and handed it to me since his night vision was hell. After 2 shots to figure out the sight, I quickly dispatched the beast and made the hound happy when the rodent hit the ground... dog had it in his mouth on the bounce.

    And there was peace.


    Owner says, with CCI ammo, no misfires on that gun. I may have to spring for one, even though I was kind of holding out for a Papoose, but nobody seems to have them in stock here.

    Kürbczech has an AR7.

    Only shot it once with rem gold bulk. Missfire every now and then but mostly good, still needs to be cleaned and broken in but it's a fun plinker.

    AR-7s are OK, but if it was me I'd hold out for the Papoose. And a possum is a marsupial, not a rodent.:lol3

    Here's my latest .22LR
    [​IMG]

    Remmington 40x USMC that I got through the Civlian Marksmanship Program. Looks like shit but will do single hole groups. It has been shot so many times the bolt handle is worn to raw steel. Topped it with a 6-24x Weaver Classic Scope since it didn't come with any sights..

    Picked up this new M-63 a couple weeks ago, pretty nice trigger, I really like it. Never had an auto I really liked. The nice thing is you pull the trigger 8 times and it goes bang 8 times. :clap Loading mags with them little .22's sux too.

    Like Lafitte says, good.

    I'm not a great shot, but at 10 yards I can put them all in a 1 ½ " circle, at 25 yards about 4". That was my first time out with it. I haven't seen what ammo it likes, I shot mostly Federal Bulk. That's as good as I've done with my Browning, so yeah I need practice. :lol3

    Nothing quite like a S&W revolver, from the big boy's right down to this model. Very nice!
    I have quite a few 22/45, might have to slip a 22 wheel gun into the mix.

    I have an AR7 and it is a real dissapointment. It won't shoot 3 times without a jam. I would love to trade for a papoose.

    Haven't shot my AR7 yet. I do know that the Remington bulk.22 does not cycle well in any of my guns. Winchester white box cycles just fine.

    Got a new (to me) pistol this weekend.

    I was shopping for a new carry gun but couldn't decide, so I got a fun training gun. Plus, I think it makes a good light weight backpacking pistol. It came with a GemTech adapter, guess I'll have to get a can for it! :evil
